The Teaching of Computing at Allonby Primary School:
At Allonby School, we use Purple Mash to teach Computing, which begins in the Early Years through the use of 'Mini Mash'. The Purple Mash Computing Scheme of Work is a comprehensive set of resources aligned to the National Curriculum for Computing, Technology and Digital Competence. Purple Mash exposes children to a wide variety of digital tools, technological skills, and innovations.
The scheme for Early Years (Reception) shows opportunities for using Mini Mash or Purple Mash as part of the Early Years classroom to support children in working towards early learning goals. It is important to note that schools can move the order of units around to suit their curriculum intent.
From Year 1 onwards, children will all follow the Purple Mash sequential schemes, which are linked to the National Curriculum. The planning has been adapted to our school, so we follow a 2 year cycle in KS1 (Years 1 and 2) and a 4 year cycle in KS2 (Y3-6) and adapt lessons appropriately.
